magic finger 2 Finger mounted Device Creates Its Own Touch Interface

Flipping the touch screen paradigm on its ear, a group from Autodesk Research, the University of Toronto, and the University of Alberta have created a new method and apparatus for user interaction. Dubbed Magic Finger, the system consists of a micro NanEye RGB camera, an optical mouse sensor, and an LED attached to the index finger with hook and loop. It’s all very beta at the moment, but such a device, if developed further, could turn any flat surface into a touch interface. [via Gizmag]
